Hi all ESX Gurus, I am running a ESX3.01 server connected to a openfiler iscsi san running really well for the last 4 months. I am attempting to configure another Target / LUN and when I do a rescan of the Storage adapters it finds the target without a problem when I attempt to add storage the drive does not show up.
Also in the target under the lun it is the same size as the First Target / Lun. Even after removing the first target and connection of a new drive with a different size the next drive shows up with the size of the first and cannot be added to the storage. I have attempted this with up to 7 targets from 2 different ISCSI Servers with the same results.
Also as a note 4 months ago I had 2 separate targets connected and working. Also using exactly the same size drive does not help.
Yes it is possible to edit the file in openfiler and it works, I can at least see the drive with the correct size and am able to see the drive to add it to the storage. i did not do so yet since it is listed as SCSI target 7. Is there any way to clear the iscsi target list without a reboot? Thanks
According to an older post you have to completely "remove" (unconfigure) the SW iSCSI from ESX and readd it.
I guess a reboot is faster (though I don't know if a reboot helps)
Super, it works like a charm. Completely Removing and refreshing the iscsi drives did not help It kept the Target 7 label but I guess I can live with that for now. Thanks for your Help
